Relying on hard-nosed defense and exquisite ball movement, the NCAA Kings San Beda University Red Lions orchestrated a drubbing against back-to-the-wall Emilio Aguinaldo College Generals, 75-48, to secure a second-seed finish in Group A

It’s really our game to play defense today. Even though general have shooters, we did try to really eliminate them from scoring,” San Beda head coach Boyet Fernandez expressed.

Up by as much as 21 points after the break, the Red Lions showed no signs of stopping as they feasted on the passing lanes to further bury the Generals with an 11-to-two run, 57-27, with a little over three minutes left in the third frame. From that point onward, the Red Lions never looked back and walked away with a dominating win.

All but two players in the Red Lions’ den registered a basket in the game, with Kenmark leading the pack with 11 points. While Toba Eugene posted a double-double performance with 10 markers and 11 boards for San Beda, who now sits at second place in Group A with 7-2 slate.

With 6:54 remaining in the third, the waxing hands of Carlo Young, Justin Gutang, and Edward Dixon were able to plant a 16-point gap, nurtured by a 20-to-two run, 56-40 — a lead that they never relinquished the rest of the way.

Gutang punched in 17 points and eight rebounds for the Blazers, who still sit atop the Group B bracket with a 7-1 slate.
